Smoothie : Beat the Heat

I love(ed) a good, fresh, tart margarita - nothing like one on the rocks with salt to beat the summer heat. So what does one do now that she has said adios to the quintessential summer drink? I make this smoothie - a take on a margarita but brimming to the non-salted rim with healthy benefits!

There are several reasons to consider lowering your daily alcohol intake or eliminating it completely from your diet >>> Read Scientific Journal

This is not new news - its either you do or you don't for your own health experience. I chose first because I was leaning on it to relax (funny coming from a yoga & meditation teacher/practitioner!) and second to help reduce inflammation in my body.

I had to make a clear choice and put my stake in the ground and be good with that - and I was. It was my choice to do. And guess what - it was totally fine and there are many noticeable differences. My husband was right on board and noticed healthful changes as well. We are also saving $$ on alcohol so we can buy extra frozen fruit for the yummy smoothie I am about to share with you!
